Near the dodgy P Burgos area but a relatively harmless old school pub/bar/saloon. Lots of bike themed posters and decoration (many quite tacky but aligned with the general theme); many big men with beards who look like they rolled up on a big Harley but probably live around the corner; 2 pool tables; outdoor tables and a big gas grill...

We had a group of approximately 18 and we had such a great time. The drinks were very reasonable, the food was masarap (delicious) and the service was second to none.

When my girlfriend and I were hanging out here, a question went through my head: How come you see the best biker's bars outside of the United States? It had everything: Cheap, cold beer, 2 pool tables, a great band, and lots and lots of biker memorabilia and of course, bikers.

We've watched the Soccer World Cup here at all hours as well as the Rugby World Cup. They have good food including Nachos, Chicken Fingers, Fajitas, Steaks, grilled meats, etc. Beer is... More

Food is good, The bar is well stocked. The waitresses DO PAY attention to you. Unlike other places in Philippines, the waitresses make sure they are close by and make sure your empty bottles are picked p and more beer/drinks brought in. Besides, they are very friendly. Music is real good, depending on the day. My waitress was Doreen, she... More

A great place to go for a drink, have a game of pool, watch the footy, rugby, league or cricket and get some reasonable pub grub. Other sports bar weren't showing AFL and this one does, so gets the nod. Has an excellent big screen setup too.

This is a great bar to watch live sport at and have a chat with your mates. Nice place to relax with a few drinks and listen to some really good live bands. The spirits there are a bit expensive however that fits in with the Girlie Bars situated there as well. The steak has gone downhill recently because Management... More

My wife and I were supposed to go El Chupacabra and there was no more seats. So we decided to go to Handle Bar which is quite near. This was in December and for me this place has the best Beer and Burger Combo. Beer is chilled perfectly and loved the Angus Burger. Perfect for happy hour and also great... More
